Question

Question;Use the following information for questions 1 through 4Rollins Corporation is estimating its WACC. It?s current and target capital structure is 20 percent debt, 20 percent preferred stock, and 60 percent common equity. Its bonds have a 12 percent coupon rate, paid semiannually, a current maturity of 20 years, and sell for \$1,040. The firm could sell, at par, \$100 preferred stock which pays a \$12.00 annual preferred dividend. Rollins' common stock beta is 1.2, and the risk-free rate is 10 percent. Rollins is a constant-growth firm which just paid a dividend of \$2.00. Its stock sells for \$27.00 per share, and has a growth rate of 3 percent. The floatation cost is 5% for debt, 10% for preferred stock, and 25% for common stock. The firm's marginal tax rate is 40 percent.Question 1 (worth 15 out of 100 possible points for the quiz)Part a. Calculate the cost of existing debt.Part b. Calculate the cost of new debt.Question 2 (worth 15 out of 100 possible points for the quiz)Part a. Calculate the cost of existing preferred stock.Part b. Calculate the cost of new preferred stock.Question 3 (worth 15 out of 100 possible points for the quiz)Part a. Calculate the cost of existing common stock.Part b. Calculate the cost of new common stock.Question 4 (worth 15 out of 100 possible points for the quiz)Part a. Calculate the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) for existing capitalPart b. Calculate the weighted average cost of capital (WACC) for new capitalQuestion 5 (worth 15 out of 100 possible points for the quiz)Given that the company?s required return (WACC) is 10%, rank the two following projects:Use only one best method to rank the projectsProject A BProject life 2 years 12 yearsInitial investment \$1,200,000 \$1,500,000Annual operating cash flows \$180,000 \$225,000Question 6 (worth 25 out of 100 possible points for the quiz)Foley Systems is considering a new investment whose data are shown below. The equipment would be depreciated using the MCRS system basis over the project?s 4-year life, would have a zero salvage value, and would require some additional working capital that would be recovered at the end of the project?s life. Revenues and other operating costs are expected to be constant over the project?s life. What is the project?s NPV?The accelerated rates for such property are 33%, 45%, 15%, and 7% for Years 1 through 4.WACC 10.0%Net initial investment in fixed assets \$75,000Required new working capital \$15,000Sales revenues, each year \$75,000Operating costs (excluding depreciation), each year \$25,000Tax rate 35.0%
